We went to One Red Dog in Wellington on Saturday night, so we didn’t have pizza in mind when we visited the new Mediterranean Food Warehouse in the Hutt on Sunday afternoon. We were just happy to have a look around the shop and have a coffee. We’ve been fans of Gino and Joe Cuccurullo’s Mediterranean Food Warehouse in Newtown for a while, often making the pilgrimage out there to buy a big tin of olive oil and have a calzone.
The layout of the new Hutt store is great – there’s heaps of space – and it’s very family friendly. As well as the shop, there’s the caffe area with a pizzeria and gelato stand. Our flat whites were spot on – and the lemon tart was divine. So we left happy, thinking that when the weather improves, we must remember to pop in for gelato. (I think we’ll be back for calzone before then!)
That’s the great thing about the Mediterranean Food Warehouse – there are so many reasons to visit. For coffee, for shopping, for a pizza and a beer or for gelato. All I can say is, I’m one very happy Hutt Valley Chick now that we have our own Med Food Warehouse in the Hutt. Congratulations to Michele and Joe Elenio – we wish them all the best with their new business. We’ll be definite regulars! See the video below for a taste of the Med!
